Those are most likely your subgroups when 1-2 is depressed it sends the ch to sub group 1 and 2 if the pan is center if your pan is left then its sent to 1 and if its right its sent to 2. The subgroups should also have a pan so you could put all drums on 1 and pan that center so it is a mono ch to your main out. The aux outs are for monitors for a band so each individually on stage can have a mix of stuff they need to hear. So say for a Drummer they need to be able to hear there kick,snare Bass maybe so vocals and guitar as well so you would go to your drum aux for me its 1 and turn up the pot labeled aux 1 on the kick ch then the snare and so on also there are on some boards buttons labeled pre post next to auxes this allows you to set if the aux gets its signal before EQ or after.
Its to bad they got an analog console that one appears to be about 6k new and for 8 you can get a Yamaha LS9 witch is a way better console overall. Also do you have any outboard gear FX,Comps,Gates,EQ and what mics do you use?

Yeah the subgroups makes sense, and I know what the aux ports do. Um no I don't we have any outboard gear. And we use a variety of the PoS mics that even dropped several times.

Sounds like mics are gonna be the next thing that needs to be replaced. Sennheiser makes some great wireless options. As far as wired goes shure is the big one for instruments and vocals for instruments 57 is always a good choose and vocals 58 is great. Carvin makes a good 58 like mic that sounds great even when compared to shures 58. If your mic'ing drums Audix is king there d series sounds amazing d6 on kick i5 on snare and high hat d2 on rack toms d4 on floor toms and adx 51 as overheads just overall killer drum sound. I could rant on mics forever lol
Anyway as far as who you can talk to locally i tend to not recommend DJ's as they tend to have poor gain structure habits that are not good for any situations other thatn DJ'ing at least in my area. I would however recommend looking at company's that rent PA gear as they tend to Local Front of House engineers that would be willing to let you sit in on a live event an watch kinda like an internship also some of the bigger local bands that have some of there own PA may let you help out most of this stuff was learn on the fly at least for me it was. Ill keep an eye on this thread also feel free to PM me if you have any other questions ill be happy to reply.

Well we just bought a new wireless mic set with 4 handheld, 4 headsets and another 4 headset that blend into the skin. Well since we only have a few big events at school so we really don't need a whole new mic set. But could you recommend like some "multi purpose" wired mics (if it exist) ?
We have a local company that rents gear call tour tech and that sounds like a great idea! Thanks. Yeah Ill keep your name!

For multi purpose wired mics i would recomend getting a few shure 57s and some 58s a good alternitive to the 58s is Cavins M68 i use these instead of 58's for lots of stuff as they are cheaper and have a great sound in some cases the sound better than the 58's also a 3 pack is 169 bucks. If you end up mic'ing drums often then Audix is the way to go they have a simple 4 piece kit with 2 overheads a kick and a snare. The D6 kick mic and I5 snare can be used in place of 57s on lots of other instruments. If you do look at Audix's other offerings avoid the F series kits at all costs there cheap but have the worst overall sound of any mic kit.
